Stuffed animals & Jeff Koons
If you should be in Paris, don't forget to stop by the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature. Central Le Marais. This museum with stuffed animals and hunting still lives is brushed up with works about nature, done by contemporary artists such as Jan Fabre, Jeff Koons or Walton Ford. Most interesting are the oil paint sketches by the 18th century hunting painter Alexander-François Desportes (1661-1743) if you ask me, with the artistic portrayal of a Hoopoe in particular.
